Haywoodgolf unveils limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated irons, wedges and putter

Published

on

Haywoodgolf has been making waves in the golf equipment world, and the recently formed company has now unveiled it’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs which extend to their irons, wedges and all-new putter.

Each clubhead features 10-microns of 24-karat gold (5-times more than standard gold-plating) designed for a bold look as well as excellent durability.

Included in the range is Haywood’s first putter release, and along with its 24-karat gold plated look, the flat-stick is CNC-milled with dual, removable weights. Made of 303 stainless steel, the putter contains 3-degrees of loft, 72-degrees of lie angle, and weighs 350-grams. The putter starts at $550.

The brand’s signature irons contain a two-piece hollow body design with a 431 stainless steel body (soft) that is welded to a specially heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel face (hard) – designed to offer players maximum distance. The 24-karat gold-coated irons start at $2500 per set.

Haywood’s signature wedges are forged with S20C carbon steel with CNC milled grooves designed for soft feel and maximum control and arrive in 52, 56 and 60-degree loft options. The brand’s 24-karat gold plated wedges start at $399.

With bespoke customer service in mind, the limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are currently “reserve only”. Once reserved, the company will reach out to each customer directly to decide on shaft, grips and ferrule options.

Haywoodgolf’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are available to reserve now at gold.haywoodgolf.com.

    Im 1/2 tempted to order a putter. NOT bc of the gold nonsense but bc of the dual sight lines. Not too common to find putters set up like that. Being right handed and left eye dominant putters set up like that are perfect.

    Wrapping gold plating around 17-4 cast steel? Seriously?

    I’ve always though iron covers were stupid. Well, they still are, but they’re mandatory for these. Yet they’re designed for showing off, right?

    I really don’t care how much money someone wants to spend on clubs, nor vanity. But these simply don’t add up.

    These can’t be for actual play, are they? They would look great mounted on a wall.

    When a golfer shows up at a high end club with these irons, the immediate response is “what a douchebag!”

      Why? Because some people can afford things you can’t? Do you think “what a douchebag!” when you see someone driving around in a nice car too? Sounds like a personal problem…. just sayin.

    Spend a lot on equipment only to have it look like crap after a few months. That will wear off very quickly. Who thought this was a good idea?!? And the glare off those would make them unplayable in the right sunlight.

    Gold has many wonderful, useful properties. Use in any kind of sports equipment outside of computers for e-sports is not one of them.

Justin Thomas: What makes him an elite wedge player

Published

on

It might be easy to say that a player like Justin Thomas is near the top of the leaderboard because

  1. He hits it the best
  2. He drives it long and relatively straight
  3. He is having a good putting week

I would agree and disagree with all three. Yes, they are definitely factors, but in my opinion, it’s his wedge play that has been the most notable part of his game—especially in 2020.

If you look at the stats, you will find a player who is not only damn-near deadly from 150 yards and in, but also a player who gets out of trouble about as well as anyone in the top 10 in the world.

We are talking about 2020 as a whole FYI.

(Stats via PGATour.com)

Now strokes gained wedge stats have multiple variables affecting the ultimate stat, fairways hit, where a player misses it, out of the rough vs out of the fairway, putting, yada, yada, yada….

At this point, if I had to pick a player to get it done around the greens it would JT or Jon Rahm. True artists. Go back and watch some of the shots from the FedEx at TPC Southwind or even Kapalua this year, it was the reliance on his wedges that became the secret sauce. Like the putter, good wedge play can be an equalizer when anything else is falling short. And when the rest of the bag is decent, for a player like JT, good wedge play equals wins.

I wanted to dig in a little deeper, so I asked my old friend, Vokey’s Aaron Dill a few questions on what makes JT unique with a wedge in his hands…

JW: As far as technique, what in his action makes JT so good? And if you could compare him to someone who would it be?

AD: Justin’s technique is really something to watch. His ability to stay loose, calm, and maintain effortless speed while delivering the wedge accurately really shows his comfort with a wedge in his hands. Justin keeps the club out in front of him and he has mastered the ability to control his golf ball’s flight and spin.  I could compare him to many, but I sometimes feel he is in a league of his own.  

JW: Beyond the great shots we see on highlight reels, where does JT really get it done from an SG perspective? What do you see that the average person wouldn’t? 

AD: Justin does it all very well. You know this because he is 9th in SG around the green and this is partly due to his spotless technique but his ability to scramble in difficult situations. Something he does that amazes me is his creative vision of shots. There are times when he is in a situation where he hits a shot we don’t expect or think of. His comfort with a wedge is fun to watch, he makes all short game shots seem like they are no big deal and you can see this by his free-flowing, loose and speedy wedge action. You can tell he feels at peace with his wedge technique.

JW: He has an interesting set up for his wedges that has been well covered, but since you first met him, how has his understanding and approach to his wedges and wedge play evolved?

AD: Justin’s wedge set is unique, however, a lot of thought and intelligence has gone into crafting this matrix. Since the first time I met him, he has worked hard and he has always had the desire to want to improve and push himself. You can see it in his strength training, his increase in ball speed, and his general approach to competitive golf. His knowledge of his short game has improved over the years and it shows in his success. You can see how comfortable he feels when a wedge is pulled from the bag, you can bet he will be landing the ball close to the hole setting himself up for a makable putt.

Justin Thomas’ wedge specs 

Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design Raw SM7 (46-10F @47.5, 52-12F @52.5), Vokey SM8 (56-14F @57), Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks (60T @ 60.5)

Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 (46), True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 (52-60)
